Another great tench session with Mike from 7am to 1pm, over 50Lbs between us, great sunshine too!
Both fished one centerpin rod, Mike using pellets, me on 10mm Berkley boilies ; We missed a lot of fish with hook pulls as the lilies and weed was thick.
my swim, Mike fish:
15 tench for me, best ever in one session!
Last minute decision with the weather looking very bad, headed to a small Carrick Lake this morning with Mike. At the lake around 6.30am and was fishing just after 7am; Decided on just one float rod, my newly acquired Maver Abyss X Series 12ft float rod with the trusted Marco Cortesi Centerpin, bait changed during the session but mainly fruity 10mm boilies/ worms on a Guru QM1 size 14, all this right on the bottom (about 7ft).
Rain did show up too, as expected! First it was a very short shower but from 12pm we had serious downpour, no regrets having to carry the brolly
Ended up at 1.30pm with 8 Tench, lost a fair few too due to hook pulls – This made for a cracking session with fizz and bites almost constant; Mike swim was somewhat quieter but got him 3 nice Tench also!
Another Tench session yesterday morning which produced 3 Tench, all caught on the Pin with a single corn on the hook. Lost one at very beginning of session, probably too lightly hooked. The conditions were excellent and the constant feeding of my float swim worked once again – Groundbait + hemp + loose corn + pellets every hour or so. Feeder did not produce at all despite a few line bite here and there.
